Overdryve 8 Pro II - Delete a POI File

This unit came with a “LOW GROUND CLEARANCE RR CROSSINGS” POI file factory installed. I don’t want it and would like to delete it, but cannot figure out how to do it. It constantly announces these crossings, even when they are not my route.



POI Import into Rand McNally Overdryve 8 Pro 2

The "2.0 Devices" from Rand McNally place the imported POI files in a different location than the older devices.

They should be copied to the



I have prepared a PDF file showing this procedure:



Download POI in RM Tablet TND85

I have been attempting to download OI files into my new TND 85 and I can't get it to work.

The USB is set to Transferring Files.

Opening the TNDT85 Files is a Internal Shared Storage Folder

Inside this is an RM folder among other folders

Inside that RM folder are

Walmart .csv gives error when adding to tnd1050

Hi. I have a TND 1050 that I'm trying to set up some POI files in. I'm a trucker and have set up some files I downloaded from POI-Factory. Only one I cannot get to load is the Walmart CSV. I keep getting the blue tag "Importing Custom POI's" followed by "Error importing POIs"

I have the Blue Beacon CSV in and it works fine so I know I have the files stored in the right folder.

Adding Proximity Alerts

I am customizing the truck stops POI to contain my preferred locations. I want to add a proximity alert for those locations. By loading only those locations that I use I won't get continuous alerts for every truck stop I pass.

Which column does the proximity alert go?


I’ve been so frustrated with RM not updating their POIs since 2018. Luckily I came across this site. How does one add new truck stops to a 740?

RVND Map Updates going away

I contacted Rand McNally Support because my RVND 7720 had not been updated in a couple of years and the welcome screen reported that my maps were over a year old.

The response was got from Rand McNally support was not clear about "up to date". Does anyone know when the last map and what version number it was? Was "up to date" as of a year ago or recently? My map version is: Version: 4.5.3790.1609.118274 (5806)
"Thank you for taking the time to contact Rand McNally.

Your device is up to date. I apologize but we no longer offer future updates for RVND 7720 devices as these models are no longer supported."


Rand McNally 740

Anyone know the trick to getting the 740 to announce truck stops such as TA, Petro, Loves, etc ….. I have it announcing independent truck stops and rest area's but can't figure out how to get it to do the other. Thank You Kevin kroy_55@yahoo.com

Rand McNalley TND 85 Import POI File - Not working?

I’m trying to import a walmart.csv POI file on a TND 85. After selecting the “Import Data” app I don’t see any selectable items in the list.
I copied the Walmart.csv POI file onto the device in folder RMImportPOIwalmart.csv, also I tried from the SD card. Does anyone have a suggestion what I’m doing wrong. Thanks for your reply.

Installing POI on Rand Mcnally tnd 540

i have been searching all day long and have found nothing on how to install the POI's on a Rand Mcnally tnd 540 and was wondering if there was anyone on here that could give me instructions on the process? Rand Mcnally has the worst tech support I've ever come across!

Car/truck icons?

Can someone point me to where I can find additional rand McNally gps color car and truck icons? I opened a few up and they are a series of a couple dozen different positions almost impossible to make myself. Thanks!.

Change Delorme Draw files .an1 to .csv files to use with Rand McNally

I have been motor homing full time for 9 years. I use Delorme Street Atlas and have created 1000's of POI in .an1 format, but I would like to convert them to .csv files and import them into

No access to WiFi for map update (TND 740)

I have what is probably a dumb question but is it possible to download the updated map file for my tnd 740 to my phone and then transfer it to my computer and then to the unit in the corresponding folder? I'm sure several of you know that truck stops do not have the fastest Wi-Fi and I don't have 9 hours to sit around and wait for it to download the updated maps..

Map updates?

I purchased a refurbished RE50. I can't get any map updates, the "register for lifetime updates" button is greyed out, and the gps tells me the maps are over 1 year old. I registered and updated the unit when I got it a week ago, I thought it updated my maps, but NO.
Has anyone else encountered this problem?

rv 70 tablet

Any one having problems with their rv 70 picking up satellites ? RM support is about worthless, they say they are working on it - then they tell me to move it where it has a clear view of the whole sky and at least 18 inchs from other electronics - I tried but hard to drive holding it out side the window (gets wet also) - lol. looks like the built the thing with a very cheap chip set.

Can RM TripMaker file be imported into Good Sam GPS using Import TripMaker icon?

Good Sam is shutting down Trip Planner tool on April 12.
My docking station software ONLY allows Import Trip Planner.

How do I get the docking software to allow import TripMaker file?


Rand McNally Voice add-ons ?

i tried a search, but i always have bad luck with forum searches.

Are there no voice add-on packs that have been created or that can be downloaded (i didn't see any on Rand's site)?

I have a TND740


POI vs Roadtrip

I am a complete newb when it comes to a GPS system. I know how to download a poi program to my gps. I can also get a road trip from Rand-McNally trip planner to my unit and possibly a Good Sam route.

100+ Multi Stop Trips

I am running into so many issues with trying to build garbage routes with addresses for pickup. I use software called Trashflow which shows pins where the customers are but has no navigation. We did buy GPS units for the trucks and can mark POIs with them. I was reading however, that I would be limited to only 50 stops. Is this accurate?
